“Switzerland is one of Rail Europe’s prime destinations and a central hub for European train travel.
“We are therefore delighted to now have some of the country’s most legendary peaks as part of our B2B and B2C inventories, thereby extending our offer beyond train travel.
“I look forward to seeing our customers discovering these incredibly exciting mountain attractions in the coming months. We are getting ready for the opening of the bookings of the Winter season.”
Celebrated for its exceptional punctuality and efficiency, the Swiss Federal Railway System (SBB) connects picturesque towns and cities as well as mountains and lakes.
It also offers travellers an unrivaled experience of comfort and breathtaking scenery, while navigating through the heart of the Alps.
As such, Switzerland remains a top destination for travellers coming from all over the world, both in Winter and Summer time.
The Swiss Mountain Peaks are an ideal addition to a Swiss discovery and the Swiss Travel Pass or Eurail Pass offered by Rail Europe.

The Gornergrat Railway is Switzerland’s first electric rack railway. This pioneering feat of railway engineering goes all the way to the top of the mystical mountain and glacier above Zermatt.
This panorama funicular negotiates the 735 meters of altitude to the Harder Kulm, located at 1322 meters in just ten minutes, taking travellers from Interlaken up to its local mountain.
The steepest cog railway in the world draws visitors to the 2,132-metre-high mountain overlooking Luzern.
As it slowly rotates, the TITLIS Rotair cableway takes travellers to the snow-covered summit of Titlis, 3,020 metres above sea level.
Since 1893, the open wood coaches have been travelling sedately up towards Stanserhorn from Stans. Starting at the intermediate station, the aerial cableway with its open roof deck is one of the main attractions.
For 130 years, the only cog railway in Ticino has been making its 40-minute journey up to Monte Generoso at an altitude of 1,704 m. In summer, the oldest, regularly operating steam locomotive in Switzerland runs up to the summit.
The 126-year-old cog railway takes travellers from Wilderswil to the Schynige Platte., connecting particularly picturesque vantage points.
Located in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Jungfrau-Aletsch, and saddled between the Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, Jungfraujoch, Top of Europe (3,454m) is the highest railway station in Europe.
The picturesque ride goes from the shores of Lake Geneva before rising into the fresh mountain air. Climbing more than 1,600 meters in altitude, the railway passes fields, villages and forests.
With increasing altitude, the narrow track along the slope offers ever-more spectacular views over Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.
